A Slackware-based distribution of Linux specifically designed to created dedicated servers

editor's review




Roblinux is a multilingual and open-source distribution of Linux derived from the highly acclaimed Slackware operating system and designed from the ground up to be used by system administrators to deploy dedicated servers.

It supports both 32-bit and 64-bit instruction set architectures

This is a multi-arch server-oriented Linux operating system that’s distributed as installable-only ISO images, supporting both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures. The ISOs have approximately 300MB in size and must be written to either CD discs or USB thumb drives of 512MB or higher capacity.

The boot prompt is minimal, translated in Italian

As mentioned, this is a multilingual system that supports both Italian (default) and English languages. The boot prompt is very minimal, translated in Italian and designed for experienced Linux users who want to add extra kernel parameters before starting the live system.

The entire installation process takes place in text-mode

Despite the fact that it’s advertised as an installable-only ISO image, the operating system will run in live mode if you press the Enter key at the boot prompt. Arrived at the login prompt, the user must log into the live session using the root/root username and password combination and start the text-mode installation process from there.

Supports KVM and it's LSB compliant

All things considered, Roblinux is a minimal, live and free Slackware-based server-oriented operating system aimed at hardcore Linux users who are looking for a new challenge in terms of server systems. It has been engineered to support kernel virtual machines (KVM) and it's LSB (Linux Standard Base) compliant.
